Resolved 2009: Blog

St. Luke bloggin'A few weeks back I decided that in 2009 I'd finally embrace the phenomenon know as "blogging." Why, you ask?
  • All the cool kids are doing it (and others).
  • An "artisan's" desire to create and share (likely a fancy way of saying, "I'm just arrogant enough to think others might care what I think.")
I'm not one to start something if I'm not willing to pursue it with excellence (thank you Seth Godin, The Dip for helpful language and further inspiration). But I imagine it will take a while to find my voice.

So many options:
Question for you: What significant new challenge are you taking on in 2009?

Finally, to make myself seem more clever and noble in this bloggish pursuit (ah, there's that sarcasm :), a favorite quote to close:
He is The Way.
Follow Him through
the Land of Unlikeliness;

You will see rare beasts
and have unique adventures.

- W.H. Auden

* I actually have a deep fondness for all things Canadian, having grown up 20 minutes from the New Brunswick border in Mapleton, ME. The combination of having more Canadian television stations, and the mostly-girls church youth group about an hour's drive into Atlantic Time (we always tried to get there before we left), didn't hurt either. So go enjoy the rather impressive art work of the other "Jason Condon," and please buy something or hire him for a massive project (because when he slips into oblivion off page 1 in google, I don't want that on my conscience).


  1. One of the better first posts I've ever seen. Nicely done. I look forward to your adventures in blogging.

  2. Uh, what's with the Canadian thang, eh? No worries mate, you have way too many words and need to get them out -- so here's the place to do it :).

    I'll accept your challenge and rejoin the blogging crowd but it'll have to wait until I'm working from home full time again which should be in the very near future, so hang on to your hats -- the Canadian is coming...

  3. HA! That's great. Thanks for the mention...... I think.... :) And don't worry, you still make up about 90% of the Jason Condon hits on Google. I just have the one. And I'm bound to self sabotage myself soon enough anyway.

    The other Jason.

  4. Thanks for the comment Jason Condon (the original)! All joking aside, I was serious when complimenting your artwork and the Great White North (I've even been to PEI, pre-bridge). There will always be a spot for you on "page one" if I have anything to do about it.

    And I completely understand if you don't want to change your name :)
